As for now, the market of mobile photography accessories is exploding and it can be a bit of a struggle to find the right fit for your needs. To make things easier, here is a review of universal AUKEY’s Ultra Wide lenses. Who knows, maybe this is what you have been searching for?
First of all, this is budget-orientated phone accessory, it goes for around $30-40 retail price but I must say – it does not descend premium phone photography manufacturers such as Moment, Olloclip or Bitplay, which can range from $100 and up. Ultrawide lenses fits just well for travelers. It does not need additional case for attachment. AUKEY’s lenses comes with 6 constructed elements and it can easily attach to any smartphone or a tablet with a little help of handy plastic clip.
How wide is wide? It captures almost a panoramic photo, with a little over 238 degrees, this is very handy when you have to take a picture of your friends, take a photo of a big event or just a nice, ground-to-sky forest shot. You can choose a panoramic mode in your device and squeeze out up to 700 degrees wide, that’s what I call an ultra!
The quality: It’s a decent accessory for its price. As I’ve tested it on my iPhone 7 Plus, it was quite a struggle to put the lenses in a perfect position because of the 2 cameras. It takes bright, crisp and ultra-wide photos. Here’s one shot of the forest on golden hour:
All in all: approved! It’s a step up for your mobile photography and with a little bit of the design improvement it can beat up phone photography giants not only because of the price and quality but also of its ease of use.
+ Takes ultra wide photos, so you can shot it all at once.
+ Doesn’t changes colors of the pic.
+ Easy clip-on, doesn’t require any other additional accessories for attaching, such as cases or frames.
– Might be a struggle to use it on some doubled cameras phones.
